Ride DVa Snowboard Park Bindngs

BEST FOR: PARK

Our testers raved about the great energy transfer the DVa delivered, making it perfect for boards with lots of torsional flex like the Gnu. Credit the silicone-like straps, which mold to the boot for a flush, ultrasnug hold. Aluminum in the baseplate and heel cup made one tester exclaim that they were “the most durable women’s bindings I’ve ridden.”

Burton Escapade All Mountain Snowboard Bindings

BEST FOR: ALL MOUNTAIN

Although Olympian Hannah Teter rocks the Escapade in the park, our all-mountain testers found it rigid enough to rail high-speed carves on groomers and soft enough to surf knee-deep powder. A new design from Burton has an internal mesh highback sitting a quarter-inch in front of the hard plastic highback, which lent support to hop-turns on steeps.
